Artists show off unique garments at BI Trashion Show

Paige St. Pierre won the Best Ready to Wear award for her garment "Bird's Eye View."

The fifth Bainbridge Island Trashion Show took place July 25 at the Hilltop location in the Grand Forest with over 150 ticket holders attending.

Thirteen artists and their models were stationed along the trail for attendees to get an up-close view of the unique garments. Entries are vetted for their applicability to the mission of the show. Judges review the designs, materials and creativity of each entry, awarding cash prizes in various categories.

Lynn Christiansen was the big winner, taking home three awards.

Award winners were:

Best Ready to Wear: Paige St-Pierre, Title: Bird’s Eye View

Best Use of Materials: Lynn Christiansen, Title: STOP AND SMELL THE (PACKING) PEANUTS

Most Creative Use of Materials: Baeven Hoit, Title: Something About Fish

Student prize for an under 18: Mary Voltin, Title: Brown Bag Glam

“People’s Choice” award: Lynn Christiansen

“Peer Award”: Lynn Christiansen

“I Support the Girls” was on site as a nonprofit, collecting undergarments and educating attendees about their programs to help homeless women in need of undergarments and other personal toiletry needs.

The Trashion Show is sponsored by Sustainable Bainbridge, which strives to reduce waste produced by the community, from the purchase of material to disposal, and encourages changes in behavior that lead to the sustainable use of resources.
